SANILAC COUNTY, MI – Coyotes are not domestic dogs.
However, one Michigan resident apparently failed to realize that, and it got him in trouble with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
According to an official report, the incident occurred when Mark Siemen, a conservation officer in DNR District 6, received information that a coyote had been captured and was being held at a resident in Sanilac County’s Lexington Township.
The DNR was informed that someone had put a coyote on a dog leash and that the wild animal was acting out of control and upset. CO Siemen responded to the location and spoke with the subject, who said he found it on a road and that it had been injured.
According to the report, the subject said he picked the animal up and brought it home with the intentions of giving it to a rehabber. He added that despite contacting multiple rehabbers, no one would take the animal.
CO Siemen then educated the subject on why he should not have brought the coyote home and why he should have not put it on a dog leash. Enforcement action was taken.
DNR District 6 also includes Bay, Gratiot, Huron, Isabella, Midland, Montcalm, Saginaw and Tuscola counties.

Brian Hutchins had just ventured out his back door to corral his chickens into their coop.
This time, however, he had woken up from a nap and had to take care of his chickens in the dark. The 49-year-old believes it would’ve turned out differently if he didn’t have his knife in his pocket.
“It wanted to kill me and I’m like ‘no, that’s not happening,’” he said.
As the wounded animal retreated into the woods, Hutchins was able to get a better look. He describes it as the biggest coyote he’s ever seen.
